good composition with some blown out parts

back to bump +1, and leave some additional comments:
the good:
dof and wb look good,
good expression and apropriate clothing for the story.
the bad:
too bad the right hand (a bit overexposed) merges with the blown out white books in the bg.
spectacles' frame is intersecting left eye (I can´t avoid seeing it all the time, not sure if this is "bad" though:-)).
I would like to see better lighting control.

Pretty subject and good composition. I like it, but wish there was a little more to her expression.

good portrait shot, excellent model

The hand is over-exposed. The rim of the glasses only just miss the pupils. The background works quite well here.

A simple photo very nicely done. Eyes are off center to add interest, eyes are definitely focal point, dark hair dark flasses and shirt complement each other well. Lighting is really nice... subtleties on the face, glasses work well, hari creates some soft shadows.

Very commercial looking. I mean that in a positive way. Very nice work! Get a model release and sell it!

Very well done. Excellent composition and DOF. This should do well :)

I like the image but the background makes my eyes hurt. It seems to pull me away from the subject just enough

Awesome photo, and gorgeous model!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow. I love the sexy librarian look. If the top of her hand was not blown out it would be a 10. however it is still a very nice 8 from me. I hope to see it on the front page. :)
